  1. New starter not engaging flywheel

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Just the point. Pre "improvements", this place was run by, and for Rangie owners and anyone needing information about the breed. Now that it has, literally overnight, been taken over by profiteering IT Muppets who needed over a week to even spell Range Rover correctly and the site is suffering...
  2. New starter not engaging flywheel

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    It still causes my bile to rise when I look in on the mess this once proud site has become. You 2 are heroes, along with escape for at least offering some correct answers based upon your vast experience. I am still hiding out in a nice dark corner of the Pub........ The site owners continue to...

    Feedback? OK, I have been asked by several outstanding members to weigh in here...... There was ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with the forum the way it was. It was NOT broken, slow, unreliable or even outdated. It IS SERIOUSLY SCREWED UP NOW! I have already migrated to rangerovers.pub Not sure just...
  5. Fuse box LR6 and 7

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    If you are using "Auto" setting, it is perfectly normal for the blowers to start at full tilt, and then slow down as the target inside temp is reached. If temps are set for "LO", and it does not blow cold enough to get there, you may have a gassing issue. Try it on LO (and other temps) with the...

    "To peck away at it's carcass in front of my very eyes" ??? Ewww....I can just picture a bunch of farmers in frayed tweeds with screwdrivers!8-0= You Jersey Islanders are truly the Poets over there!8-|= Of course there is more to try........ You can place a jumper wire in the starter relay...
  7. "Service Engine Soon"

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    As you have done a "Recent" tune up. Go back and double check that all the plug wires are on good and solid. A consistent but slight misfire can trigger the SES light. A code reader would probably come up with "Catalyst damaging misfire" As Theo suggests, get the scan tool on it and it will...
  8. Suspension dips while driving

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Kultur just drove off in his very tidy silver beast......(Thanks again for the front bags!) We were going to swap in a pair of sensors from the Borrego (Still on coils) however, on careful testing, they both proved to have some bad sectors on the pot. He is going to try a pair off ebay. You are...
  9. Electrical connector - under dash RHS

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Great news! Gotta love the easy ones. Have you looked to see if the same nimrod has perhaps unplugged the LH blend motor? If so, and it works, that would be a record for easy fix of HVAC!:dance:
  10. Black box solutions

    Diagnostic Equipment
    I would go with "None of the above" I have an MSV and have not used it since I got an Nanocom. MSV abd FCR are single vehicle boxes that are "stand alone" however, I have found that MSV really needs to be connected to a laptop to give full functionality, whereas the Nano is a stand alone machine...
  11. p38 tail light wiring

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Has your truck got an adapter box installed to convert from Euro 5 wire to US 4 wire trailer lights? It will be found in the right rear corner behind the access door for the taillights and fuel flap release. It plugs into a dedicated plug there. If someone has just added trailer wires without...
  12. Suspension dips while driving

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    As you have swapped the sensors left to right, how about swapping in 2 new front sensors? Possibly the issue shifted left to right with the sensor swap, but the results feel the same whilst driving? Have you run the sensors manually through their range of motion whilst connected to an ohm meter...

    Rave is available free online, and works fine here.........Don't have to buy it. https://rangerovers.pub/static/rave.zip
  14. ABS Issues

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    If you are keen on keeping a P-38 and are that far from competent help, you might consider getting a Nanocom or similar diagnostic device for your P-38. That way, you can have a look and see what the ABS light means before just doing "Hand Grenade " fixes..... Even if you do not wish to do your...
  15. Traction Control issue after fitting suspension dust boots

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Glad you got the MOT. It seems possible that you have a minor wiring issue. Have a close look at where all of the wires from the sensors meet the chassis and look for chafing. Second, more likely possibility that comes to mind is the standard loose / corroded earth point and a current loop...
  16. Overheated 😞

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    First, Don't panic. Just because it overheated does not mean cracked block. These things get mis diagnosed way too often. Are you completely SURE that you refilled and bled the system THOROUGHLY? If there is an air lock at the top end, it will seem all is well, and when it heats up a bit it...
  17. Poly Bush? Just say NO

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Thanks! I figured it had to be a basic funnel shape to get the bush to squeeze down as it entered. Makes sense. That or a set of sleeves, one to hold the shape and one to push.
  18. Poly Bush? Just say NO

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, ya made it back from Pismo! Good job! How was it? New sneakers work out well in the soft stuff? Yep, still pinned down by the persistent gale force winds from the NW, so a bit of light maintenance. You are welcome to come by and drop air bag, whatever day works best for you. (Sunday?) Also...
  19. Poly Bush? Just say NO

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The bushes I got had nylon shells and were a bit oversized to get started into the bore. I suspect they require some sort of compression sleeve to be inserted as designed. A bit of a turn on my field Lathe (Bushing on a bolt a drill motor, and a disk sander...Failure was not an option) and I...
  20. P38 carpet fixing.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Mine are not square, but here are some photos..... The part that goes into the carpet is a big sort of auger screw. The piece on the over rug is just a hole that accepts the post clip from the carpet Shown in the "attached" state. Does this help to make sense?
